After a thrilling 4-3 overtime victory at No. 6 Maryland, the No. 24 MSU men’s soccer team finished its weekend East Coast road trip with a 4-0 loss at Georgetown on Sunday.
The Spartans arrived in Maryland and took an early lead into halftime, only to see the Terrapins take a 3-2 advantage into the last minutes of regulation.
MSU followed a last minute Maryland goal with one of its own by junior midfielder Brent Rosendall.
The 10-minute overtime period was won with a header by junior forward/midfielder Domenic Barone five minutes in.
Following the Maryland game, a quick turnaround to Georgetown was needed to complete the weekend.
The Spartan squad was dominated by the Hoya team picked to finish fourth in the Big East.
College soccer is a dynamic game and teams can’t be expected to win every game, especially if not in top form, head coach Damon Rensing said in a release.
“(Georgetown) made plays, executed well, and deserved to win the game,” Rensing said. “They are a good team from a quality Big East conference. Today, we weren’t mentally or physically sharp — and you can’t win that way in college soccer.”
